Property inspections with UAVs can offer a safe, efficient and cost effective way to carry out property inspections whilst keeping your feet safely on the ground.

Whatever stage of property development, drones can offer significant advantages over traditional methods such as scaffolding or cherry pickers.  Using aerial technology, inspections with high quality photography and videography can be carried out in a fraction of the time that it takes to erect scaffolding.  This means that not only are inspections completed quickly and efficiently, but at reduced cost as well.

Your drone pilot can fly their UAV as directed by the property or construction manager, even allowing them to see footage in real time so they can get exactly the data they need.

Drones and Thermography

The addition of a thermal camera can also mean that information is revealed that would be invisible to the human eye. This can provide an ideal method of fault finding and problem diagnosis that is non-destructive and doesn’t cause disruption for workers or residents.  When a problem is found such as water ingress, missing insulation or thermal bridging, thermal imagery can be combined with traditional photography to provide pinpoint accurate data to repair and maintenance teams.

Drones and Insurance

Property inspections are not simply useful from a repair and maintenance point of view.  UAV inspections can also be a valuable tool in providing relevant information to insurance companies – speeding along the claims process, especially in hard to access areas such as roof tops.  All the data can be collected with minimal disruption to the home or business in question.

Drones and Inspection Data

Drone photography does an excellent job of setting a property within its environment to provide a general overview. However, camera technology has evolved to a point that also allows the pilot to zoom in on particular areas providing high resolution images of the smallest details. Flight patterns can be selected and resulting images stitched together in sophisticated software to form 2D or even 3D maps.

The resulting images and photographs can provide valuable data to property owners, compelling marketing materials were required and also accurate records during the construction phase meaning that the hidden infrastructure can be fully revealed for later maintenance teams.
